Saturday, Saturday ...

Just a short update and some musings for you-

I thought I would share this with you all:

 

Yeah, the hardware in our schools are modern, up to date equipment ... NOT! Note the build date on that clock mechanism.

A good friend made a comment about that last pic I posted. I smiled, then giggled, then busted up laughing for some unknown reason. She managed to lift my spirits on what had been an otherwise tedious day. I smiled a bit the rest of the day because of that little comment. Thank you, Aslaug. I needed that.

Now, on to the actual reason I started this post after my bit of digression was to inform my friends that Chapter 32 of "A Loss Of Rights" is posted for your reading pleasure. I admit it's a bit short but it sets up the next chapter.

Enjoy the weekend,

Transfer Test

You all may or may not be able to read this as this is a test to see if I can transfer my blog to another computer.

The reason? It has become time to clean up the old laptop and remove that hunk of malware called Window$ Vista Premium. To that end I have to be able to blog while this work is going on. As many of you know, I purchased my laptop with Vista installed. I can get all the drivers for XP so I'm going to revert to a faster, sleeker OS for my lil' laptop.

Take care,

UPDATE!

I have moved this database from one computer to another and back again! Yay for me! 8D

Housekeeping ...

OK, so it's an electric water heater ...

Stuff stacked against a water heater  

Those green things are dust mop heads.

Oh Well ...

Sunday's ... Troubles ...

So, here I sit, attempting to put thoughts to text. I'm not being very successful, either.

I'm not sure what happened but I have lost all inspiration to work on several works that I haave been thrashing. I'm not sure if it's the heat, the heavy workload or my brother's troubles, but for some reason I have grown cold to either story. My inspiration is gone.

I'll type some more when I feel more motivated.

Thursday's Thoughts

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, a view from your home is worth everything. Including jail time.

It seems a homeowner on Regency Court in El Cerrito wanted a better view of the bay and the San Francisco skyline. So much so that they saw fit to poison 13 California Live Oaks in El Cerrito's Hillside Nature Area, a public park.

This heinous crime has been going on for over two years and was perpetrated by a person with a power drill, a long auger bit, some poison and wine corks. The evil @$$hole drilled the trunks below ground level and poured poison in, corking the hole afterwards. That my friends, is a felony. I hope he goes to jail. For a long time.

The city says it will replant so the perpetrator doesn't get that view he/she was after. If he/she ends up in jail, it will be a moot point for him/her.

That's all,

Sunday's Ramblings

Today's ramblings will be short and sweet.

It's been a long week and my back injury has been catching up with me. So much so that I didn't attend the Scottish games yesterday. Maybe today.

It still ceases to amaze me what I find at the school sites. Found in a junction can:

Box in a junction can  

Yeah, that one surprised me, too. In case you're not a techie, that's a box of cabling, 2 each 22 guage wires in a white jacket. Purpose? Unknown. Reason for being in the junction can? Unknown also. The orange corrugated tubing houses two fiber-optic cables, in case you're wondering. The telco room is on the other side of that wall, btw.

Anyways, enough for now.

Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day and please be careful if you have a barbecue or an open fire pit going! California has enough wildfires going as it is ... don't add to it!
